Las Vegas Housing Market Update – July 2024

 

Join Rob and me live on YouTube as we dive into the latest developments in the Las Vegas housing market for July 2024. While June saw an increase in the median sales price and a consistent rise over the past five months, total sales were down, and the number of new listings hitting the market decreased. As a result, our inventory is now on the rise. But what does this mean for the future? Will inventory continue to climb as we head into the fall season? Are home prices set to drop?

 

Tune in to hear our thoughts on where the Las Vegas housing market is headed for the remainder of the year. Plus, find out who won last month’s bets between Rob and me! Don’t miss out on this insightful and engaging discussion. See you there!

INTERESTING INFORMATION

Cash transactions for homes continued to climb as well in Southern Nevada as 26.6% of all local property sales were all cash, up from 25.1% a year earlier, but still far off from the record high that was set back in 2013 (59.5%).

 

Many homeowners are hesitant to leave the homes they are currently in, and more importantly, give up the ultra-low interest rate they nabbed during the pandemic. Analysts said this “locking” phenomenon is a country-wide issue, and has pushed the entire nation into a housing crisis.

 

Las Vegas finds itself in the middle of a housing crisis as Nevada is short more than 78,000 affordable rental units for extremely low income renters, according to estimates from the National Low Income Housing Coalition. Plus, the valley is landlocked with 88% of Clark County alone controlled by the federal government.

 

A Las Vegas research firm report estimates the Las Vegas Valley could run out of land to build houses in as little as eight years, causing some industry leaders to support a federal lands bill to make more desert land available for development.

 

NEW CONSTRUCTION – July 2024

With limited inventory on the resale side, buyers are turning to new construction homes. Especially since a lot of builders are offering interest rate incentives on their move-in ready homes.

 

The Southern Nevada Home Builders Association estimates the region will end 2024 with 11,500 permits pulled for new home construction in the region, and new home sales are up roughly 8% from this time last year. In 2023, 10,442 homes were built in Southern Nevada and 11,106 homes were built in 2022.

 

In 2023, new home sales made up 25% of the residential sales market, and the last time that figure was that high was in 2008 at 24%. Resale home sales also hit their lowest rate last year (30,480) since 2007 when 23,956 existing residential properties were sold in the region, according to data compiled by Applied Analysis.
